My first PC build....gone horribly wrong =(

Ok,so i am building a pc with a Asrock K7VM3 motherboard, AMD athelonsocket 462 processor. i did my build in an atx case, with many casemods, and powered it with a ATX 550w power supply. I turned it on, andit went to boot mode, but the keyboard wouldnt work, and i tried threedifferent ps/2 keyboards, to find that it was most likely the board...so i took the cmos battery out and put it back in, as instructed... Nowthe machine wont power up at all..... So i bought a new motherboard,and IT wont power up either.. Did I blow the CPU? Or the power supply?What can/ should I do?????? Please help!

Hi,

Please CLICK HERE for more info on your power supply.
My guess is that your power supply is dead. If the fan doesn't spin it may be that the fan died first and the PSU overheated.
Now, if you are fortunate nothing else got damaged. You can remove the PSU (the mounting screws are on the back of the case, there should be four) and buy a new one at your friendly local computer parts store. Get one rated for at least as much power as the old one. We can give you a hand on this if you tell us what the lable on the side of the PSU says.
I should caution you that there is a chance that when the PSU went it damaged other parts of your system.

Goodluck..

Asrock K7VM3 mother board with AMD Athlon 2600+ processor.
The Motherboard is having a AGP slot which says to use AGP with 4X and 1.5 V
Can someone suggest the market products available
when I contact the technical team of Asrock. they responded as below:
The AGP slot on K7VM3 is the standard AGP x8 slot , as long as the VGA card you want to buy is standard AGP VGA card , K7VM3 can support the standard AGP VGA card.
Or , you can double check your question with your VGA card vender before you buy it .

Loud beeping sound on start up , now will not start up , power ok


First remove the Ram and boot the system without it. If you hear continuous two beeps, then the problem is with the Ram, you need to replace it. If nothing happens, then your cpu or your motherboard is gone. Good luck. Thanks for using FixYa.

Hi,

You may be able to just swap out the motherboard for a K7VM4 motherboard but some of the specs are different like the chipset and graphics etc.

K7VM4 specs as follows >>>>

  1. Socket A(462) for AMD processor
  2. VIA® KM400 Chipset
  • ASRock U-COP
  • Hybrid Booster - a safe overclocking feature
  • FSB 333/266/200, DDR 333/266/200
  • Integrated UniChrome 3D Graphic.
  • 1 slot for AGP 8X/4X 1.5V
  • ASROCK I/O - default 4 ready-to-use USB2.0 ports on rear panel, default Game/MIDI port.
  • ATA 133 supported
  • On board default 10/100 LAN and 5.1-Ch Audio.
K7VM2 specs as follows >>>>>>>

  1. Socket A(462) for AMD processor
  2. VIA® KM266 Chipset
  • ASRock U-COP
  • DDR 266/200
  • Integrated ProSavarage8 3DGraphic.
  • 1 slot for AGP 4X/2X universal.
  • Supports both DDR and SDRAM memory modules to provide you best flexibility and save your cost.
  • ASROCK I/O - default 4 ready-to-use USB2.0 ports on rear panel, default Game/MIDI port.
  • ATA 133 supported
  • On board default 10/100LAN and Audio.

As you can see the graphics and chipsets are different although the processor sockets are the same.

This could cause problems if you are going to plug the hard drive to another board but saying that is is possibe and has been done before.

This is a chance you take when you swap out a board for a different motherboard although i suspect that the transition should go smoothly.

A fairly old motherboard like K7VM4 or K7VM2 will not cost that much these days. You will find both motherboards for sale on eBay.



Regards.

Can I upgrade my 1Ghz processor to a faster 2 or 3Ghz? I have an EliteGroup 741GX-M, socket 462 desktop with an AMD sempron


yes, it is possible, but the Front side bus will limit the functionality so much that it wouldn't be worth it.

Hi,

An ASRock K7VM3.motherboard is a socket A (462) board specifically for the AMD processors. To my experience, these boards (due to age and period of usage) are prone to:
  • bulging/leaky capacitors of the high current regulators near the CPU;
  • the heatsink tends to be dislodged/misaligned causing overheated processor;
  • loose memory slots causing defective memories.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
